Gompers recently celebrated what administrators noted was “the largest API gain of any middle or high school in San Diego Unified,” meeting all of its state API targets. As administrators wrote happily to CREATE partners via email, “Every sub group in English Language Arts achieved federal proficiency due to the significant gains in total proficiency across the board in English.”

CREATE assists Gompers Preparatory Academy to develop a college-going culture of learning by linking in UCSD students who serve as tutors, as well as offering expertise in teacher professional development, research, evaluation,  governance, and parent education.
